White-tailed deer hunting in focus on '4 Weeks of Whitetail' beginning Friday on Versus

A white-tailed deer buck stands alert in a field. Although white-tailed deer are not found in California, there is still hunter interest in them, for whitetails can be found almost everywhere else in the country (there have been occasional sightings of whitetails in the northeast portion of California but they have never become established here, and the last confirmed sighting was more than 50 years ago).

So to help hunters gear up for the white-tailed deer season, Versus is airing its annual presentation, "4 Weeks of Whitetail," from 5 to 8 p.m. beginning Friday and continuing each Friday through  Aug. 27.

Viewers will see six half-hour episodes each week from three popular hunting series: "The Bucks of  Tecomate," featuring Jeff Foxworthy and David Morris;  "The Buck Stops Here," with host Mike Hanback; and "Winchester Whitetail Revolution."

Versus will also offer a weekly "Rut Report" on its website, to help hunters plan for their outdoor excursion. Featuring information collected from hunting pros and experts about whitetail activity throughout North America, the site includes maps highlighting hot spots, a Q&A and games for hunters to test their skills.

Whitetail deer are found across the North American region, at 29 million strong, including where cities are expanding. These areas intrude on what was once the whitetails domain. As deer become more and more exposed to this humane society, they become less afraid of humans. In these areas you can find deer walking right up to you, not spooked one bit, and coming into your yard to find whatever morsel of food they can find.
